One For the Money...Two for the Show

Yep it's a "Two-fer" Challenge Card today. 
First up it's the Annabelle Challenge - Say it with Brown and Blue
Next we have the Blogger Challenge 171 - Anniversary

Due to time constraints I sometimes find now that I have to combine challenges.  Since it's already Friday in Australia and now back East in the US you are viewing my card for both these challenges.

For this card I used 2 Annabelle Stamp sets: Ballerina Rose (Flowers) and Flowers With Love (Sentiment).
For my Designer Paper I picked out a retired SU pattern, Parisian Breeze.  This showcases, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze and Kraft (aka Crumb Cake now).
The flowers were stamped with Chocolate Chip ink and I added just a hint of Glitter (Nirvana - Art Institute) to the centers.  I also added some felt flowers in Baja Breeze/Chocolate Chip with brads from Pinkhedge Hog Crafts.
I use the SU Scallop Punch and added some Chocolate Sprinkles (Annabelle Stamps).
The ribbon is a retired SU Grosgrain-Taupe which matches the Crumb Cake pretty doggone close.  It looks darker in the picture, not sure why but I had a really hard time trying to get this card to photograph right.

So now be sure to stop by the Annabelle Blog or visit the DT members blogs by clicking on their names on my sidebar.
You can also visit the BC Members blog the same way. 
I'm sure they'd all love for you to stop by for a visit.
